Total Solar Eclipse Over America

Total Solar Eclipse Over America

You'd have to go back almost 100 years to witness the last total solar eclipse over America and boy did they take advantage of this one. Just about everyone in the country had gotten themselves a pair of special eclipse glasses and stared at the sun (and moon) until it went dark. And light again.
